Ham-Filled Puffy Omelet

  • 3 egg whites
  • Dash salt and black pepper
  • 3 beaten egg yokes
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced cooked ham
  • 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash Italian blend (or herb of your choice)
Preheat oven 350 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl beat egg whites, salt and pepper with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand up straight). Fold in yokes until all dark yellow is incoporated.

Coat a large oven-proof skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Spread egg mixture in skillet. Cook about 3 minutes or just until bottom is golden. Bake in a 350 degree oven 3 minutes or until dry on top and edges are light brown.

Loosen the omelet from the sides of the skillet with a metal spatula. Make a shallow cut slightly off center across the omelet. Sprinkles cheese over larger sid. Top with ham and seasoning. Fold smaller side of omelet over larger side. Cut omelet in half.

Notes & Tips:
There are TONS of variations for this recipe, just swap out the meat or cheese for something else. Also, this a super light meal, if you're looking for something a little heartier serve this with hashbrowns or pancakes. Tonight I served this with toast and jelly.

12/19/13 - UPDATE: I made this tonight with shredded chicken, Parmesan Cheese and bacon filling. Very yummy. I served this tonight with pancakes and sausage.
